LDNO 491545 ortho k blog 3395 Blog 1200 x 900In a world where digital screens dominate our lives, it's no wonder that more and more people are experiencing myopia, also known as nearsightedness. This common eye condition can lead to the inconvenience of relying on glasses or contact lenses. But what if there was a way to correct your vision while you sleep? Enter ortho-k lenses, an innovative solution offered by Dr. Laura Di Nino in Markham to help manage myopia.

Myopia on the Rise: Why Myopia Management is Crucial

Myopia is on the rise, especially among children and young adults. With the increasing amount of time spent on screens, textbooks, and other near tasks, our eyes are under tremendous strain. The result? The world starts to blur, and we find ourselves in need of vision correction.

Dr. Laura Di Nino understands the importance of addressing myopia early to prevent it from worsening.

What are Ortho-K Lenses, and How Do They Work?

Ortho-k, short for orthokeratology, is a revolutionary treatment that corrects myopia while you sleep. These specialized contact lenses gently reshape the cornea, the clear front surface of your eye, to achieve clear vision when you wake up.

The process is quite simple; you insert the ortho-k lenses at night, and as you sleep, they gently mould your cornea. In the morning, you remove the lenses, and voila! You can see clearly throughout the day without needing glasses or contacts.

The Benefits of Ortho-K Lenses for Myopia Management

Ortho-k lenses offer several advantages for managing myopia:

  • Daytime Freedom: Say goodbye to glasses and daytime contact lenses; ortho-k provides clear vision during your waking hours.
  • Slowing Myopia Progression: These lenses have shown promise in slowing the advancement of myopia, preserving long-term eye health.
  • Comfort & Convenience: Ortho-k eliminates the discomfort associated with daytime lenses and the inconvenience of carrying glasses.
  • Ideal for Active Lifestyles: If you lead an active life, ortho-k lenses are a perfect fit, offering freedom during sports and outdoor activities.

Who is a Candidate for Ortho-K Lenses?

Ortho-k lenses are suitable for many individuals with myopia. Dr. Laura Di Nino utilizes the Topcon Myah Instrument to detect myopia progression by measuring axial length, ensuring the best-fit treatment for each patient.
